September 3, 2002 - Game 138
The Montreal Expos' latest triple play was a sight to behold. Brad Wilkerson singled home
the winning run in the 10th inning and the Expos turned a triple play in the 7-6 victory
over the Phillies. The unusual triple play began with Marlon Anderson striking out and
Placido Planco being caught in a rundown between first and second on a steal attempt as
Travis Lee strayed off of third. Cabrera threw over to Fernando Tatis, who tagged out Lee
for the third out.
Bartolo Colon went seven innings giving up 10 hits and four earned runs, but the bullpen
bailed him out as Dan Smith and Joey Eischen shut down the Phillies the rest of the way.
Eischen picked up his 4th win of the year. Matt Cepicky, pinch-hitting, started off the 10th
with a double. Jose Macias, who would score on Wilkerson's single, replaced him on the bases.
The Expos had 10 hits on the day and made them count, as they left just 3 men on base.
It was the Expos second straight wins after losing three to the Braves before this series.
